Afrobeats singer and songwriter, Owodunni Ibrahim, popularly known as Prime Boy has been considered a person of interest in the death of Nigerian Afrobeats singer, MohBad known in real life as Ilerioluwa Aloba.

Prime Boy was declared wanted by the Police recently after the security agency opened a full investigation surrounding the death of the Beast and Peace singer.

Prime Boy, who is a childhood friend of MohBad but well known by many others as the late rapper’s brother, has been named in the allegations that led to the death of the singer.

The Lagos State Police Command made an announcement, on October 5, stating that Owodunni Ibrahim, known as Prime Boy, has voluntarily surrendered himself to the authorities to aid in further investigations.

This follows the declaration of Prime Boy wanted by the police with a 1 million Naira bounty placed on his head due to his non-compliance. The bounty was triggered after police summons sent to Ibrahim at the beginning of the investigation into MohBad demise were not honored.

SP Benjamin Hundeyin, Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer revealed on X, (formerly Twitter), that Prime Boy had turned himself in. Hundeyin in his post stated that “he (Ibrahim) has immediately, been taken into custody for interrogation and other necessary actions.”

It can be recalled that Prime Boy had a fight with MohBad in Ikorodu which resulted in the injury the latter sustained partly being considered as a cause of his sudden demise.

Recently, Afrobeats sensation Naira Marley was picked up by law enforcement authorities in Nigeria over the death of the Feel Good crooner.  Naira Marley was detained to assist in investigating the death of the 27-year-old artiste.

The Soapy hitmaker had previously announced that he was turning himself in on Tuesday, October 3, after returning from a trip abroad.

“I’d like to share that I’ve just arrived back in Lagos, Nigeria to assist the authorities with the ongoing investigation. It’s important I do my part for Imole. I’ll be meeting with the police with hopes for the truth to be uncovered and for justice to prevail,” Marley said referring to MohBad’s moniker.

Afrobeats patrons all over the world are closely monitoring the development of this case and are hoping that the late singer gets the justice his cult followers are clamoring for.
